How would a robot understand its environment and make sense of semantics in the environment to better collaborate with a human world? How can multiple robots use the knowledge of these abstractions to communicate with each other and achieve a mission with minimal cost? These are a few of the questions that inspire the MSM team. This a cross-discipline group where we do full-stack robot research on topics ranging from perception to behavior learning all the way to multi-robot coordination.
